2021 AAUT Briefing Sessions

27 May, 2021

From May to July, we are delivering a series of online briefing sessions to create awareness of the awards as well as to support potential applicants. These sessions provide valuable information and sharing of insights from previous award recipients as well as from those who assess the awards.

We encourage all nominees applying for a Citation, Teaching Award or Program Award to attend the session briefings that are a best fit for their own application, regardless of discipline. They are a unique source of information and will help applicants craft a concise and focused submission. For more information click here.

The Australian Article on the 19th May

19 May, 2021

As reported in The Australian on the 19th May, Universities Australia (UA) deputy vice-chancellors (academic) committee chairman David Sadler, who is also DVC (education) at the University of Western Australia, is committed to finding a way of continuing these awards.  Professor Angela Carbone, AAUT Awards Director, views that this is not a good decision and gives the perception that the Australian government doesn’t really value excellent teaching or the quality of education we give our students, or doesn’t value innovations in the higher education landscape.

2021 AAUT is going ahead

13 May, 2021

In response to the short article in the Campus Morning Mail (13 May 2021). we assure you that the 2021 round of Australian Awards for University Teaching is definitely going ahead as planned.

Please continue to encourage your brightest and best teaching academics and teaching teams to apply. We are anticipating an increase in applications across all award categories after the many novel, innovative and creative pedagogical practices during the 2020 COVID year.

We will continue to keep you updated and support you through this process this year.
